Deloitte is an international network of advisory and audit firms. It is one of the "Big Four" audit companies and is the largest by number of employees (312,000). In 2019, Fortune magazine included Deloitte in its ranking of the world's 100 most prominent companies for the twentieth time.
Deloitte's first office was opened by William Welsh Deloitte in 1845 in London. In 1900, George Touche and an associate established Touche, Niven & Co. in New York. In 1968, the accounting firm Tohmatsu Awoki & Co. (later Tohmatsu & Co.) begins operations in Tokyo. A merger in 1990 creates Deloitte & Touche, and in 1993 the company is called Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.
The founders were William Welch Deloitte, George Touche and Nobuzo Tohmatsu.
For a long time Deloitte formed a Swiss association, but on 31 July 2010 the members of the association became a private company, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd, with member liability to the extent guaranteed by them and registered in England.
Each representative office of the company has a separate legal entity that is subject to the laws of the state in which it operates. This structure, in which the cooperative provides support services only to its member firms, is similar to other international networks providing professional services. In turn, the member firms provide services to the end client.
One of the first stages of the recruitment process is filling in the application form on Deloitte Careers website.
The applicant is required to provide information about work experience, education, skills and other necessary details.
There may be questions both about job preferences (e.g. desired type of employment, country and city of residence) and more personal questions (e.g. race and ethnicity, religion, disability)
The next stage of the Deloitte recruitment process is an online assessment. The candidate will be sent an email invitation to complete Deloitte tests.
Deloitte uses different types of recruitment tests to assess candidates and their suitability for the position they are applying for.
Candidates are most often asked to complete the following tests:
Numerical reasoning tests are standardised psychometric assessment tools that help Deloitte determine a candidate's ability to work with numbers and graphs, make good decisions and draw conclusions based on numerical or statistical data. The tests simulate the work environment and goals of a prospective employee. Try our Free sample Numerical reasoning test.
Verbal reasoning tests allow Deloitte to determine a candidate's ability to perceive and analyse verbal information and to draw conclusions. Free sample Verbal tests are available to practice here and here.
Logical (inc. Diagrammatic and Inductive ) reasoning tests are designed to assess the candidate's ability to work with abstract information. Deloitte Logical assessment may consist of special diagrams, geometric shapes and other lined-up images, where a candidate has to continue the row in a logically correct way. Here you can practice a Free sample Logical test, a Free sample Diagrammatic test, and a Free sample Inductive test.
Situational judgement tests consist of short simulated scenarios that define a working style and assess specific tasks in a working environment. Deloitte Situational tests are used to assess applicants' competencies, communication skills, motivation, and preferred styles of problem-solving. Try our Free sample Situational judgement test before taking the real one.
